Cool. :D
Thanks for your work...

What issue are you talking about? I see the preferences on my list, but
nothing else. (I know it is a big stuff, I will look at it next week).
(#1 and following, IIRC)

- Update checkers seems to work now. [fd2c55] and [144402]

- Qt4 embedded video is better [68cb77], [6ec764] and [8b43c0] but not
  completly fixed (crashes on exit). Maybe related to other Vout issues...

- Qt4 fullscreen controller works in EV, but doesn't else and there are
  still stability issues (Lukas, can you look at it please?)

- Telextext buttons sometimes appear when they shouldn't (jpsaman, can
  you check your code? )

- transcoding bitrate sucks deeply, but... who knows it correctly?

I have other issues:
- embedding playlist to restore (I will do that this week end)

** Vout don't close/quit on stop like they were used to. Is it a bug or a
   feature? (I don't remember)

** Skins seem to be broken on windows. Can someone confirm?

I think Qt4 Iconset and Contribs can wait after test1, no?
Shrinking the size of the windows installer can wait too.

I would just like to ask a question: what is our road?
(test1, test2, rc* )? (test1, test2, test*)?
It would be nice to have a way for the update system to work. (I don't
think rc > test, for example).

Best Regards,

Jean-Baptiste Kempf
